Today the team provided standby rescue cover for the David Staff Memorial Charity Fell Race (who are long time friends and supporters of the team.)
This fell race takes in a course over 5.1 miles including 1200 feet of ascent, centered on Jubilee Tower, Darwen and Darwen Moor.
The race organised by Jonathan Stubbs of the Darwen Dashers Running Club. (who are long time friends and supporters of the team) has an important aim in raising money for the childrens cardiac charity C.R.Y.
24 team members were on hand today along with our 4 team vehicles and the ’Hummer’ (which was on its last day of service with the team today).
The race took place in excellent winter sunshine with fantastic visibility (the Yorkshire Dales could be seen very clearly) and good running conditions despite the ice patches.
Thankfully the race took place with no problems and we wish all associated with this event all the best with there fantastic efforts with supporting the charity C.R.Y.
